BBC and CNN's WTC 7 Foreknowledge of Collapse

BBC Announces Collapse BEFORE it Happens.
The following video includes an interesting timeline:

We wonder who supplied both the BBC and CNN with the "script" about the collapse of Building #7 before it happened?)

Revealing, shocking video shows reporter talking about collapse with WTC 7 still standing in background.

An astounding video uncovered from the archives shows the BBC reporting on the collapse of WTC Building 7 over twenty minutes before it fell at 5:20pm on the afternoon of 9/11. The incredible footage shows BBC reporter Jane Standley talking about the collapse of the Salomon Brothers Building while it remains standing in the live shot behind her head. (as you are looking at the video..Building 7 is on the right side of her head.)

Minutes before the actual collapse of the building is due, the feed to the reporter mysteriously dies. To be clear, the Salomon Brothers Building is just a different name for Building 7 or WTC 7. Skip forward to around the 14:30 minute mark.

CNN announced that WTC 7 "has either collapsed or is collapsing" about an hour BEFORE the event.

This YouTube video is an excerpt from the CNN's live television broadcast on 9/11/2001. At about 01:58 in the clip, anchor Aaron Brown states that it's about 4:14 Eastern Daylight Time. That means that when the he makes the announcement at the beginning of the clip, it is about 4:12

The following is a transcript of the two-minute excerpt:

We are getting information now that one of other buildings, building 7, in the world trade center complex is on fire and has either collapsed or is collapsing.

I .. I .. You to be honest can see these pictures just a little bit more clearly than I, but Building number 7 one of the other buildings in this very large complex of buildings that is the Trade Center ... there were -- there were -- and that is the right way to put it -- there were the two towers, but then there are a number of support buildings around it -- retail spaces, restaurants, office space, garages, the trains come in from New Jersey bringing commuters taking commuters back, come into the complex that is the World Trade Center, and now we are told there is a fire there and that building may collapse as well, as you can see.

We can see as we now look back down town, we can see the billowing smoke.

It is extraordinary to us how long this scene has gone on. The smoke has not cleared at all. It has not lightened at all. It was that horrific moment when the Towers collapsed, and then we've been in this sort of situation ever since, as the fires continue to burn. Rose Arsie, one of our producers who has been slowly and diligently making her way to the building described the fires she saw in the areas of the Towers themselves and clearly those fires continue to burn at about 4:15 eastern daylight time today, in an unbelievable and awful scene in New York.

This video excerpt was apparently extracted from a 41-minute mpeg recording discovered in a vast archive of broadcast footage publicized in late February of 2007.

Vast Archive of Footage

The premature announcements of the collapse of WTC by television networks went unnoticed until researchers discovered a vast archive of television broadcast footage from the day of the attack. On February 22, 2007, a post on listed the URLs on of 417 mpeg recordings capturing about 60 hours broadcast coverage starting on the morning of 9/11/01 from each of six different television stations. Each of the high-quality recordings covering about 41 minutes of broadcast.

The coverage included the following television stations and time spans:

TV station start time end time
NBC4 Washington 9/11 08:31 9/13 20:23
ABC7 Washington 9/11 08:31 9/13 22:29
BBC 9/11 09:16 9/13 20:19
FOX5 Washington 9/11 08:31 9/13 20:23
CNN 9/11 08:48 9/13 20:33
CBS9 Washington 9/11 08:31 9/13 20:23

Unfortunately, made the footage archive inaccessible to the public shortly after the BBC foreknowledge story was publicized.
